The name of Joanna (Goldie Hawn)'s luxury yacht in the movie was the "SS Immaculata". The boat was portrayed by the vessel "Attessa" and was also used for the film Indecent Proposal (1993). DVD sleeve notes have said "the 130ft Stayton yacht, bedecked in crystal chandeliers and velvet cheetah upholstery, was docked in Fort Bragg's Noyo Harbor". The vessel had a Kong & Halvorsen hull from 1984, was called "Yecats" at the time Overboard (1987) was filmed, was renamed "Huntress" at some time, had a small helipad on the aft deck, and was later lengthened to 142 feet. The Kong & Halvorsen '130' 'Yecats' yacht was later destroyed in a fire but the crew and passengers all survived. See more »

This was a great film. I enjoyed it thouroughly! The casting couldn't have been better and it was hilarious! The kids were great and made me laugh! Kurt did another excellent job. All those who are fanatics for edge of your seat thrillers, don't even comment on this movie, go see Soldier or something, maybe you'll like that better. "Typical 80's trash" WHATEVER!!! Just enjoy the story, I loved it. Kurt you are such a cutie and you and Goldy belong with each other, (but I'm sure you already know that!) 10/10!!!
